38. Soul is selected as the best simile for God


उपमान नित्यत्वधर्मो द्वितीये गीतः।३८।
upamāna nityatvadharmo dvitīye gītaḥ|38|

In the second chapter of the Gita, the comparative concept of the simile is well-discussed.

Explanation:

In the second chapter of the Gita, the soul, which is selected as the best simile for God is introduced and the concept of comparison is clearly established to give the reason for selection. The comparison is that God is eternal unlike the temporary world. Similarly, the soul is also not destroyed even if the body is destroyed. Due to this comparison alone, is the soul selected as the best simile.
